New England Congressionals, 2010.



I'll complete this map for New England - that is, if anyone can figure out what it means. Grin



Still nothing? Oh, maybe I'll just have to tell you.

Alright, fine. This map shows the majority sex in each town: pink and red for a female majority, blue for a male majority. In Hampton and Hartland, there are exactly as many women as men. Suffield, Montville, Cheshire and Somers all contain prisons and therefore are mostly male - Somers is over 60% male. Many of the males incarcerated in prisons in those towns are residents of pink-colored cities and towns: Hartford, Bloomfield, Hamden, New Haven, Bridgeport, etc.

An interesting case: Mansfield contains both a prison and a university. The male-heavy prison and female-heavy university (UConn) nearly cancel themselves out, and the town is split almost evenly between the sexes.

Can you possibly do 1984 Presidential? How about 1972?

HC, I'd be interested in seeing RI-Sen. 2000 and ME-2 2002. Both feature a pro-life Democrat running against a pro-choice Republican.

As does one of the Maine gubernatorial elections.

Here are the RI senate elections since 2000. The race you were looking for isn't all that interesting.



The other requests have been noted. I'll get on them soon.

1980 Presidential.



Anderson won exactly one town in the four states I have data for - Pinkham's Grant, New Hampshire - which was also his strongest performance (40% - two of five votes)

However, he came very, very close to winning the college towns of Hanover (Dartmouth) and Durham (UNH), breaking thirty percent in each.

Carter won two towns in New Hampshire - Hanover (just barely) and Cambridge (two of the three votes)

What's with the 1970s-1980s rump Democratic base around Fairfield, VT and most of Franklin County. In 1988 there's also that weird Democratic area in Addison and Washington Counties which is weird. What explains that?

The Addison and Washington areas aren't particularly weird - they remain quite Democratic to this day, and that hasn't changed too much since the 1970s. The explanation is simple: those towns are close to an important college, and thus are home to numerous professors, college workers and students. Towns like Strafford, Norwich and Thetford (just across the river from Dartmouth) and Cornwall and Weybridge (near Middlebury) have unusually high numbers of people employed in "educational services" and "post-secondary education". Since those towns are so small, it doesn't take a lot of college-related voters to swing their politics significantly to the left.

I should do some further research into "college town peripheries", since they exist all across the Northeast.

But as for Franklin County, I'm not too sure. The only thing particularly remarkable about Fairfield, for instance, is its huge dependence on agriculture, but I don't understand why that would mean more votes for Democrats. The St Albans area also was a stopover-point for immigrants passing through Canada, but again, that doesn't explain the towns to the east. My best guess relates to the nearby industries: manufacturing in St Albans and asbestos mining in Belvidere.

I hope that helps, Hash.
